Neha Dhupia finally breaks her silence on why she kept her pregnancy a secret for 6 months

When Neha Dhupia and Angad Bedi tied the knot on May 10 in a hush-hush ceremony in Delhi, several speculative reports emerged that said that the reason they rushed into marriage all of a sudden was because Neha was pregnant.

After dodging the questions on pregnancy for months, the couple finally confirmed that they are expecting their first child last month. They made the announcement on social media by sharing a series of adorable pictures wherein Neha was seen flaunting her baby bump. 

In an interaction with Mid-day, the actress recently opened up about why she kept her pregnancy under wraps for such a long period of time. 

“I was worried people would stop offering work. It was a good thing my bump wasn’t showing till the sixth month because appearances matter here, and one might be assumed to be unfit for a job. Fortunately, my energy levels are high,” she said.

Neha does not intend to take any time off throught out her pregnancy. “It’s not that I am against women who decide to take those months off. It’s my choice,” she added. Earlier at Lakme Fashion Week, when asked if she was trying to set a trend by not sitting at home during pregnancy, she has said, “It has never been my intention to set a trend or be a part of one. The intention is to get up and continue your life and do things like nothing ever happened.”

Neha will next be seen in ‘Helicopter Eela’, which stars Kajol and Riddhi Sen in lead roles. Apart from that, she is currently busy recording season 3 of her popular chat show ‘No Filter Neha’.
